Old school quotes

“Now in history there is no Revolution that is not a Restoration. Among the many things that leave me doubtful about the modern habit of fixing eyes on the future, none is stronger than this: that all the men in history who have really done anything with the future have had their eyes fixed upon the past. I need not mention the Renaissance, the very word proves my case. The originality of Michael Angelo and Shakespeare began with the digging up of old vases and manuscripts.” -G.K. Chesterton

“The pure modernist is merely a snob; he cannot bear to be a month behind the fashion.” -G.K. Chesterton in All Things Considered
